I am not using voice files but as far as I know it should work.

Recording does work. (I tried recording from the internal microphon.
Because I do not have a radio unit I do not know if recording from radio
does work). Also I do not know about the recording quality. I only know
that rockbox offers many recordings-preferences like the file format,
frequency, etc.

Not really. But AFAIK there are battery replacements on the market. The
device can be opened with a little screw driver so changing the battery
should work, but not as comfortable as it will be with a trekstore vibez
or a normal mobile phone.

Changing the battery of the sansa on the go is not meant to be. It is
more a repairing of the device. But the battery offers a good playing
time (~20 h). Just charge it frequently and it will be no problem
(Different to a notebook that gets a problem after 3 hours).

You should be aware of a background noise problem with a sansa e2x0.
When listening to music with very low volume in a quiet environment you
can hear electronic noise. This seems to occur when the device is
accessing the RAM or doing CPU-work or is drawing on the LCD display.
This is the only real drawback of a sansa that I do know about. But in
normal situations (e.g. listening in a train) this is not really a problem.
